As a girl in the 1960’s, Evelyn remembers going to the store and hearing racial slurs. She recalls coming home and asking her mother, “Why are they so much better than we? And my Mom stooped down and kissed my tears and said, ‘baby, there’s no one greater than you except God. And that was the turning point in my life.
Evelyn admits the reality show brought out hidden pain that the family never talked about but she’s happy they were all able to deal with these real feelings and come together and still love and forgive – because that’s what it’s all about in a family.
Also, Evelyn thinks she’s a better dancer than her daughters and that they’re jealous of her skills!
